Americans Sign Prank Petition for Pre-Emptive Nuclear Strike Against Russia

Although this was supposed to be funny, it’s alarming how all these Americans willingly signed the petition to nuke Russia.

Mike Dice does it again!

In the past, the journalist-slash-prankster made fools out of many Americans by asking them to sign fake petitions such as “I Support Illiteracy,” “I am a Zombie Who Does What I’m Told, Without Thinking,” and the campaign to “Add Soylent Green (or human flesh) on School Menus” for Michele Obama’s lunch initiative.

This time, the guy is back for another ridiculous petition that again earned a lot of signatures.

The “social experiment” was conducted in San Diego and Dice approached random beachgoers to sign Obama’s plan to launch a preemptive nuclear attack on Russia. What’s the motive and purpose for nuking the country? Dice explained it was all an effort to “maintain America’s superiority.”

Surprisingly, majority of those approached readily signed the petition. Everything was caught on camera and Dice shared the video on his social media accounts.

“We just need a couple more signatures to support President [Barack] Obama’s new plan to deal with Russia,” Dice said to a random guy. “We are going to launch a preemptive nuclear strike.” Without any signs of hesitation, the guy quickly responded “I’ll sign it for you” and affixed his signature without a fuss.

Dice repeatedly emphasized to his ‘victims’ that supporting “a nuclear strike against Russia” is one way the United States can maintain dominance against the country.

Although this was supposed to be funny, it’s alarming how all these people willingly signed the fake petition to attack Russia.

However, one couple declined signing the petition when they heard that the Obama’s plan is to “launch the preemptive nuclear attack against Russia.”

Overall, a big percentage of the beachgoers approved about the idea of nuking Russia. Dice effectively summed up the experiment’s result as “disturbing.”

What is a preemptive nuclear strike?

In a nuclear strategy, a first strike is a preemptive surprise attack utilizing an overwhelming force. First strike capability is a country’s ability to defeat another nuclear power by destroying its arsenal to the point where the attacking country can survive the weakened retaliation while the opposing side is left unable to continue war. This is mostly done by attacking the opponent’s nuclear weapon facilities, command and control sites, and storage depots. That way, the enemy will be unable to strike back on the attacking country.

Underneath This Black Hole, There’s An Entire Village Living Within

They’ve got homes, swimming pools, motels, bars, stores, and even churches down here.

Australia is best known for its beaches, its exotic and bordering on dangerous wildlife, and its vast and remote outback. We’ve all heard about Australia being the “Land Down Under” but have you ever heard about the country’s “Town Down Under?”

The extreme freezing and scorching temperatures of the outback make it difficult to sustain communities, but there is one town situated smack-dab in the outback’s hostile environment. Located in the opal mining town in South Australia is an extremely hot place called Coober Pedy.

Coober Pedy derived its name from the Aboriginal term "kupa-piti".

Scientists Warn of Upcoming ‘Mini Ice Age’ in 2030

If these theories prove to be true, the sun’s solar activity will decrease by 60% in 2030.

Recently at the National Astronomy Meeting held in Wales, a mathematics professor from UK’s Northumbria University made some interesting remarks claiming that the sun’s activity will decrease up to 60% by the year 2030.

Valentina Zharkova's report is based on a new forecasting model that studies the solar cycle based on the dynamo effects on the sun’s two layers. The professor says that the prediction has an accuracy of 97%.

According to Zharkova, "We found magnetic wave components appearing in pairs, originating in two different layers in the Sun's interior. They both have a frequency of approximately 11 years, although this frequency is slightly different, and they are offset in time."...
